Two health insurers dominate Houston's market ? What it means for you

The rapidly transforming health care marketplace has created a shift in the way everyone from patients to hospitals look at health care. But despite enrollment increases in plans under the Affordable Care Act, two health insurers control more than half of the market in the greater Houston area. Health Care Service Corp. (Blue Cross Blue Shield) holds 32 percent of the Houston market share, while Aetna has a 25 percent market share. Together, the two insurers control 57 percent of Houston's health?

Titans to start Mettenberger at QB vs. Texans, report says

Rookie Zach Mettenberger will start at quarterback for the Tennessee Titans against the Texans on Sunday, according to The Tennessean. Mettenberger was the No. 178 overall pick (sixth round) in the 2014 NFL draft out of LSU. ?I really don?t think it affects it too much,? Texans coach Bill O?Brien said Wednesday, prior to The Tennessean?s report that Mettenberger was starting. ?I think we would have to go back and make sure that we watched all of Mettenberger?s snaps and what they did with him in the preseason and things like that, but I don?t think it changes too much. ?I think at the end of the day, the Titans [...]

Texans’ Brian Cushing will reportedly miss Titans game

Brian Cushing is dealing with a nagging knee injury. (Karen Warren / Houston Chronicle) Texans linebacker Brian Cushing will be out at least week and miss Sunday?s game at the Tennessee Titans, according to ProFootballTalk. The site said Cushing could be out until Week 11 due to a lingering knee injury and recently had his knee drained. Cushing suffered back-to-back season-ending injuries in 2012-13. He?s been inconsistent during the 2014 season and struggled Monday during a road loss to Pittsburgh.

Trio of guards lead Rockets to fourth-quarter comeback in win over Magic

Houston?s reserves kept the game close enough to make a fourth-quarter push to top Orlando. (Stephen M. Dowell/Orlando Sentinel/MCT) ORLANDO ? To those for whom every minute on the floor is precious, the most meaningless of preseason games ? with most starters playing little or not at all ? meant plenty. Isaiah Canaan, Troy Daniels and Nick Johnson have not played much in the preseason, and when they have, the bulk of the minutes have come in the fourth quarter when the benches were cleared. When they took over for the fourth quarter on Wednesday, the Rockets trailed by 12, but the guards aching for playing time made the most [...]

Now he?s playing at Tennessee, where he helped the Titans defeat the Texans 16-10 in the last game of 2013. ?I?m familiar with them, and they?re familiar with me,? he said. ?I know (cornerback Jason) McCourty knows some of my tricks. And a guy like (safety) George Wilson ? we played together for five years. They?ll know me and my tendencies, so it?ll be interesting to watch. But I [...]

Texas AD estimates changes could cost school $10,000 more per athlete

UT athletic director Steve Patterson's estimate came in response to a question at a forum in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday about how much it would cost athletic departments if the NCAA loses its appeals in the Ed O'Bannon case. The other is the NCAA's recent recommendation to give the power conferences - Big 12, SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and ACC - the power to pay students the difference between the value of a scholarship and the full cost of attendance, which is usually a few thousand dollars.

Autumn ushers in special time for anglers

A pair of mullet did that greyhounding thing they do when trying to put some distance between themselves and something with sharp teeth and lethal intent, squirting from the wind-crinkled water covering a room-size patch of oyster shell and frantically skipping across the bay surface in a series of shallow, urgent arcs. A cool front had pushed over the coast during the night, bringing with it the stiff northeast wind that swept the sky clear of clouds and humidity and dropping the temperature to a level that made a light jacket feel good. Along the sandy shorelines and over the exposed reefs, swarms of sandpipers twisted and wheeled in unison as if their flock were a single organism. [...] out over the bay, we could see the white flash of gull wings as the birds hovered and plunged, picking off migrating shrimp driven to the surface by hungry fish - speckled trout or sand trout, probably, but maybe redfish. [...] after watching one or two bunches of gulls break up and scatter after just a few seconds of frantic potlicking, we thought it obvious the windy conditions and rough water meant this would not be a good day for that kind of run-and-gun fishing. Chasing the birds is best on autumn days of light wind and calm water, when the gulls can more easily spot swirls of feeding fish and the skittering of shrimp running for their lives. The exposed shell on the reef was populated by a smorgasbord of birds, among them resident brown pelicans and a considerable number of their white pelican cousins, migrants, like the ducks, just arrived from their nesting ground on northern prairies.

Two arrests in machete murder

Two arrests in machete murder

Houston police have arrested two people in connection with the machete slaying last month of a 14-year-old north Houston boy. After the Meraz slaying, family members and friends said they believed the killing had been the work of a local outfit of the MS-13 gang, which is known for using machetes when carrying out acts of violence. Family and friends said after his death he had once been friends with some of the people in the gang, but made a dramatic shift this summer, even attending church services near his aunt's house. Court records shows that Granados-Guevara also faces aggravated assault charges for a shooting that took place in June.
